Sixteen-year-old science-geek Eve returns from a service trip to discover she's pregnant. The unaware father Adam is still serving as a volunteer at the Dominican Republic orphanage where they met. They plan to exchange letters until he's back in Germany in mid-August and can use texts and Face Time. By then, Eve will be eight-months pregnant--or not. Her best friend urges a quick abortion. Her pro-life mom and pro-choice dad insist she study both sides of the debate. Eve stumbles upon an innovative solution--if she's willing to be the first person to do it. She is also awakened to how badly science and medicine have let women down. This is a novel for pro-life and pro-choice women and their daughters.

 Judith retired after thirty-three years as a Chicago lawyer and now lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She and her husband have two daughters and two granddaughters. Judith writes novels and short stories for and about women.
